I am on D7 using Omega as a base theme. The <h1> tag of my theme can be found in the region--content.tpl.php theme file.

But I want to override this theme in one specific situation: on the user profile pages, I don't want the title to be set on region--content.tpl.php. I will take care of the title on the user-profile.tpl.php theme file. So what I want is a theme file that will override the custom default region theme file in the specific situation where user profiles are being viewed. That theme won't have a title set in it.

I have tried creating specific themes called region--content--user.tpl.php and region--content--user-profile.tpl.php, but they didn't override the default region--content.tpl.php theme. Any ideas? Thank you.

I found solution on this blog http://eureka.ykyuen.info/2012/05/10/drupal-7-customize-region-template-file-for-specific-content-type/ and here is my code to suggest a user profile region.

    function YOURTHEME_alpha_preprocess_region(&$vars) {
      $menu_object = menu_get_object();
      if (isset($menu_object->type) && $vars['region'] == 'content') {
        $vars['theme_hook_suggestions'][] = 'region__content__'.$menu_object->type;
        $vars['attributes_array']['class'][] = 'region-content-'.$menu_object->type;
//theme suggestion for user profile
      elseif ($vars['region'] == 'content' && $vars['elements']["system_main"] && $vars['elements']["system_main"]["#entity_type"] == 'user') {
        $vars['theme_hook_suggestions'][] = 'region__content__userprofile';
        $vars['attributes_array']['class'][] = 'region-content-userprofile';
